A recessive form of Robinow syndrome, a disease characterized by short-limb dwarfism, costovertebral segmentation defects and abnormalities of the head, face and external genitalia. The clinical signs are generally far more severe in recessive cases, particularly skeletal abnormalities. All patients with the recessive form suffer from vertebral segmentation abnormalities, resulting in scoliosis and chest deformities. Rib fusions are considered to be characteristic of the autosomal recessive form. Patients can also present brachydactyly, with extensive aplasia/hypoplasia of the phalanges and metacarpals/metatarsals, and brachy-syn-polydactyly of the hands and oligodactyly of the feet.
